A Dash Through Orvieto
Topdeck Day Seven (Part One)
Morning of Day 7 we departed for Rome, with a stopover at Orvieto. Orvieto is a small Italian town located on top of a steep hill. So steep in fact that our tour bus could not make the journey up but instead we took a train and then walked the rest. Like many Italian towns the main feature of the city is the Duomo (church), this church is particularly famous because it houses the Corporal of Bolsena, a cloth containing blood stains believed to show the profile of Jesus Christ. No one in our little group were that religious nor that excited by this but it seemed a waste not to go and see it for ourselves so we paid the 3 euro entrance. Let's just say we weren't that impressed nor amazed and to us it just looked like a old dirty cloth.
